Granger Commemorates Fifth Anniversary of 9-11


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth) today observed the fifth anniversary of September 11 terrorist attacks.

“Today, as we honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, we are reminded of the terrorist’s intense and determined hatred of Americans’ belief in freedom, and the devastation they caused because of their hatred. We must continue to show our strength of character and resolve as we fight terrorism both here and abroad. We must defeat the terrorists and their ideology. The future of Western Civilization depends on it.”

Granger serves on the Appropriations Committee and the Defense Appropriations and Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Subcommittees. She also serves as a Deputy Majority Whip. Granger is the first and only female Republican to serve in the Texas House delegation. Granger represents the 12th District of Texas and is currently serving her fifth term in Congress.
